Ok lets give it a go...

I awoke in a cold sweat, a terrified scream hanging on my lips, my fingers felt sticky, my nails broken and my bed unusually hard, I thought mournfully, damn this reoccurring nightmare.

Then I realised I couldn’t move and reality landed with a thud, as once more I began to claw frantically at the wooden box that was now my home, all the while screaming my despair at the darkness as it devoured my soul.

Let me know if you like it.

Simply enjoy the surreal beauty and purity of the landscape, and try not to look like a Neanderthal in the eyes of the Elves.

Thanks for asking.(less)

A bit about Rosie, by Rosie.

I wish I could write this so that if anyone else ever picked it up it would self-destruct. I can’t do that, so let’s just hope I can hide it well enough until I decide to destroy it myself.So–why am I writing about this if it’s so personal? Well, my therapist has been on my back for ages to do it.  He said that this would be a good way of getting things off my chest, a good way of talking about th Read more of this blog post »

“Writing is like eating Jelly with chopsticks. You know where you want the food to go, but you just can't get it there.”
Joanne McDonnell

“The room was built exactly as planned, hidden amongst a maze of pipes, water tanks and air conditioning ducts, inconspicuous to the point of invisibility. Inside, it was dark, foreboding and completely soundproof. Its walls and ceiling were solid and impenetrable with a single point of entry. It was the perfect room for storing your wine, old trophies or your newly acquired lycan.”
Joanne McDonnell, A Taste of Reality

“Vanda looked at Rema—pale skin with equally pale, almost colourless eyes; short bleached-white hair; and body, thin to the point of anorexia. Dressed entirely in white Vanda decided that if Death were a woman, she would be Rema.”

“Too late, Cooper realised he had made a mistake by drawing attention to himself, and now the vampire was closing in on him. He found himself backed up against a mini-van looking up at a vampire, fangs glistening even in the dim light.”
